Fraternal greetings to all of you, spring has sprung and finally here. Time to put away those winter garments and break out shorts and T-Shirts. For all the seasonal golfers out there, it’s time to hit the course and wake those club up from hibernation. For most of us it’s time to do all those outdoor activities we love, whether it be gardening, sprucing up the yard, or just playing with the kids or grand-kids outdoors. Be mindful also spring brings the annoying constant runny nose, congestion, watery and itchy eyes and breathing difficulties to people like myself who suffer with pollen allergies and other airborne irritants.
I would like to recognized the brothers who put time and effort in painting our Kitchen and Pantry, Brothers Bob Utter, Scott Brinley, Tim Shieder, and specially to George Grant who lead us.
On March 03, 2017 Mrs. Ruth Baumgarten and her daughter Bonnie awarded a widow certification of appreciation on behalf of her husband Bro. Harold Baumgarten, the certificate was awarded by RW Royd Keys, PDDGM and WB Jim Gaskins, PM, and she was very appreciative for what the lodge have for done to her late husband.
Also, our Bro. Ted Roycraft chili cook off was very successful. We had the honor of having Brothers from various lodges joined us in the festivities everyone had a great time tasting different chili and listening to the band. It wouldn’t have been such a success with out the help of WB Jim Baade, PM, who organized the event. Thank you WB Jim!
The Ionic Lodge has an Enter Apprentice Degree and a courtesy call was for Bro Chris Onuschak. Thank you to the Worshipful Master of Ionic Lodge accommodating our Brother to the degree of Enter Apprentice. Congratulations Bro Chris Onuschak!
I would like to appreciate the Brothers who attended the 11 & 12 District Association.
Let’s continue to make a difference in 2017.
